West Indies captain Jason Holder feels “relevant” authorities need to ensure that smaller teams get to play regular international cricket as in a world scarred by Covid-19, only India, Australia and England have the resources to stage games in bio-secure bubbles.
The cricketing fraternity has lauded the West Indies’ decision to tour England amid the pandemic. The three Test-series, which England won 2-1 on Tuesday, marked resumption of international cricket.
The series was played in a bio-secure environment increasing organisational costs significantly and Holder said teams like the West Indies are likely to struggle to create a similar environment.

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!
Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region.
